SAIP S.R.L.: accumulator Charging Valves
Accumulator charging valves are designed to fit into a variety of liquid or gas-based systems. This includes fuel systems, braking systems, even air conditioning systems.
It occupies a safety role, ensuring the system remains balanced regardless of the forces being placed on it. For example, in a hydraulic braking system, the accumulator charging valve will control the storage of energy in the accumulator.
Hydraulic braking systems contain a lot of energy as they are efficient at creating braking power. In the process of braking the energy builds up in the accumulator. If the accumulator charging valve detects that the pressure (energy stored) in the accumulator is above a predefined threshold, it will stop charging the fluid.
Equally, if the pressure drops below a specified threshold the charging valve will start up, boosting the energy level in the accumulator.
This sounds highly technical but, in essence, the role of the accumulator valve is simply to regulate the flow of fluid or gas. It can stop it to increase pressure or release it to allow it to build up again. Of course, the technology behind this is much more complicated to fit virtually any scenario.
In effect, the accumulator charging valve ensures that the pressure in the accumulator, and by default the system, is kept between pre-defined levels.
This is essential if you want stable performance from a liquid-based system.
It’s worth noting that in most cases liquid systems are separated into two parts. This means there will be two accumulators and two charging valves. The reason for this is to ensure the system will remain working, even if partially.
When you consider what systems these valves operate in, for example, hydraulic brakes or fuel systems, it becomes obvious why the accumulator charging vale is so important.
With that in mind, you’ll need to choose the best possible supplier of these valves. That’s why you need to look at SAIP S.R.L. With over 40 years of experience and a commitment to excellence, this is a company that actually cares about the parts they produce.
They were the first company to build hydropneumatic diaphragm accumulators and they have patents for a variety of new ideas. This is a company at the forefront of the industry, ready to drive forward the capabilities of its accumulators.
